DURHAM– One does not have to look far to realize that anti-Semitism is still alive, even in a state like Connecticut. Coincidentally, two towns are uniting around a book that promotes tolerance, and the timing could not be better.

As part of the “One Book, One Community” program,residents will observe Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) by showing the film “Weapons of the Spirit.” The documentary profiles the French village of Le Chambon, where Protestant Christians successfully hid 5,000 Jews from the Nazis.

The 1989 film will be screened at the Durham Public Library on April 26 at 7 p.m., one day after Yom HaShoah during Holocaust Remembrance Week. The film matches well with “The Search of Major Plagge,” the subject of One Book, One Community.
